Some of his best-loved books include My Place in Space (with Joe Levine, Sally Hirst & Robin Hirst), Burke and Wills, The First Fleet, Sick As (with Gael Jennings) and Roland Harvey's Big Book of Christmas. His recent books include The Wombats Go on Camp and The Wombats at the Zoo and, of course, his bestselling family holiday adventure series - At the Beach (including a jigsaw edition), In the Bush, In the City, To the Top End, All the Way to W.A. and On the Farm. Roland's brilliant illustrations also feature in Horse Crazy! The Complete Adventures of Bonnie and Sam, in collaboration with Alison Lester.
